Bonneville family built near Tartane a sugar mill with distillery in 1830. In 1860 installed Emilien Bonneville a steam engine, which was used up to 1950, untill the sugar mil was working. Mr. Bonneville sold the distillery in 1905 to Gaston Hardy (born in 1870). Hardy family owns the distillery until today.

The picturesque small distillery developed by Gaston Hardy and then by his son Jean Claude in Tartane produced a few hundred hectolitres per year. Production was stopped, but the brand name Hardy remains on the market; the rum is distilled in Saint James distillery.
